This portrait shows Rainer Werner Fassbinder both as an actor - taking the leading role in the film KAMIKAZE 1989, also directed by Wolf Gremm, - and as a director working on QUERELEL, his adaption of the work by Jean Genet. Wolf Gremm: "We met at a football match - we were players, not spectators. He was shooting ALEXANDERPLATZ in Berlin at the time, and I was working on FABIAN. A lot of books are going to be written about Rainer Werner Fassbinder by people who worked closely with him. The question is, will they be as fascinating as the films he made years ago about his relationship with them? I think anyone who wants to make a statement about his indefatigable life and the fascination of the memorable encounters and the act of working together with him, has to film his life and do, what he himself was best at: to describe not the people, but what lies in between them".
